Research Planned for Unique Spinning Nuclei Nets Prize
Elena Long is all spun up over the new target she’s planning for research at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Now, she’s gotten others spun over the idea, as well, and she’s been awarded the 2016 Jefferson Science Associates Postdoctoral Research Prize to make her research plans a reality.
“I’m very excited: This award is going to help us build the target that we need for doing the program that I want to build.”
“I’m very excited: This award is going to help us build the target that we need for doing the program that I want to build,” Long said. “It’s a fantastic stepping stone. I’m very happy to receive this award and hopefully use it to advance our understanding of fundamental nuclear physics.”
“Similar to the previous eight postdoctoral prizes that have been awarded, this award will continue to help promote the career development of young researchers in our field,” said Haiyan Gao, 2015-2016 chair of the Jefferson Lab Users Group Board of Directors and Henry Newson Professor at Duke University, as well as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at Duke Kunshan University in China. “We were delighted with the high-quality applications we had this year, and it was never an easier job to select the final winner.”
